By Dana Feldman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A jury began deliberations on Thursday in a lawsuit seeking $37 million in damages from the Los Angeles Dodgers and their former owner for a baseball fan rendered permanently disabled from a brutal assault he blames on lax security at Dodger Stadium. Capping 20 days of testimony in a Los Angeles Superior Court trial that began in late May, lawyers for both sides presented closing arguments before the judge handed the case over to a panel of six men and six women to decide. Bryan Stow, 45, a father of two and former paramedic from northern California, says the Dodgers are liable for violence in the stadium parking lot that left him brain-damaged and unable to earn a living. Stow's negligence suit also names then-owner of the team Frank McCourt as a defendant, accusing him of skimping on security that Stow says would have prevented him from being assaulted after the season-opening game between the Dodgers and their longtime rivals, the San Francisco Giants.
